Special Birthday Message for SL’s 10th Birthday!!!

Second Life is about to celebrate its tenth birthday and SL artist, Dizzy Banjo, is offering residents the chance to wish our lovely virtual world a very special birthday message.

Dizzy Banjo has been creating art and sound installations in SL for many years, and 5 years ago he created the ‘Message in a Bottle’ installation using the pre-recorded voices of SL residents.

This year, he needs the help of the SL community again to make a similar project.

You can record your message anonymously and it is very simple to do!

WHAT WAS THIS MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE THING?

5 Years ago, along with Lillie Yifu, I made the Message in a Bottle exhibit at Second Life’s 5th Birthday event. It featured voice contributions from hundreds of Second Life users.

Check out this video of it:

It was a treasured project – featured on the Linden Lab home page for some time after the event. Some residents and Lindens even told me it made them cry!

SO WHAT NOW?

It’s now SL10B ( wow where did those 5 years go .. ) and I have been given some space at the celebrations to do a new exhibit.

This one is going to be different – it’s not going to be a bottle – it’s going to use an exciting new trick which I’m sure you will like!

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

1. Record 10 seconds or less of your voice (using any software or app you like – suggestions below)

2. Answer the question – “What does Second Life mean to you in 2013?”

3. Email me the recording (or a link to it) with your avatar name to:

dizzysbottle@gmail.com

4. PLEASE send your message no later than Sunday June 9th.

If you send a link to soundcloud or something please make sure it’s downloadable!

*Suggestions for recording software :

Audacity for Windows, Mac or Linux

Soundcloud mobile apps

Voice memos app for iPhone

If you use a voicemorph then give me an IM ( Dizzy Banjo ) and we can work out a way to record you!

Hope to hear some great contributions soon!
